Ask Mike: Why should I do a yearbook boot camp?

Written by Sarah Scott

The latest episode of the Ask Mike podcast has dropped! On episode five, Mike Taylor, CJE, discussed yearbook boot camp with his guests, Allison Miller of Marcus High School, Flower Mound, Texas, and Susan McNulty of J.W. Mitchell High School, New Port Richey, Florida.

Miller runs a yearbook boot camp every year, one week before the start of the school year. Not only does the yearbook boot camp allow for an extra week of work time, it’s an important part of staff bonding.

McNulty’s yearbook staff meets for boot camp at the very beginning of the school year. They use that time to build on what they learned during summer workshops, as well as get a good start on the book.

Both advisers stressed the importance of staff bonding and the part their boot camp plays in it. They also talk about how they plan for a successful boot camp.
